Gret Palucca quickly ascended to dance stardom in the 1920s. Born in 1902, Palucca received her dance training at Mary Wigman's pioneering Dresden studio in the early 1920s and was among the first generation of Wigman students to go on to innovate in the world of dance. During her career ascent, Palucca positioned herself in close proximity to visual artists, and she especially touted her relationship with artists at the Bauhaus, the innovative school for art and design in Weimar Germany. This chapter examines the visual images of Palucca created by students and teachers at the Bauhaus. In so doing, it challenges the standard literature that associates Bauhaus dance exclusively with dance choreographer Oskar Schlemmer.

Keywords:   Gret Palucca, female dancers, dance history, visual artists, Weimar Germany, Bauhaus, Oskar Schlemmer
